PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump is accusing former President Barack Obama of having telephone lines in Trump Tower wiretapped during the election campaign. In a series of tweets early today, Trump said he had "just found out" about the wiretapping, which he says occurred in October. He called it "McCarthyism!" The White House didn't immediately reply to inquiries about what led to the president's tweets. Trump has a residence in Trump Tower and largely ran his transition out of the New York City high-rise.
